Kiehl’s and I had been wanting to work together for a while, but could not figure out the right format; then, they commissioned me to createa dopp kit for their upcoming Father’s Day promotions and it fell right into place.
I loved the challenge of designing a product from scratch and they were keen to let me have it produced in Italy by my good friend, Luca Roda. The deal was cemented when Kiehl’s agreed to promote the project with a shoot celebrating the special relationship a Dad has with his kids (you’ll see some of those images in a post tomorrow).
During the project I took a few photos at critical moments in the design process. The photo above is literally the moment I got the inspiration for how I wanted the dopp kit to look. (It pays to always have a camera with you!)
